Video Submissions


All video submissions should be uncut and unedited in order to accurately display the performance. Videos shot with a fisheye lens or similar lens may be rejected due to the visual distortion these lenses cause.  Sound should be ON during the filming. Be sure the athlete has adequate space to safely complete the movements and clear the area of all extra equipment, people, or other obstructions so that the video is clear.


Critical items that need to be clearly visible on the video

  1.  Scale verification using a dumbbell or kettlebell 
  2. Weighing of the athlete's selected weight they will carry
  3. The process of setting the GPS device ready to start the challenge
  4. Clearly show challenge data - distance covered and time taken - on the GPS device used 


THE ATHLETE WILL NEED TO FOLLOW THE STEPS OUTLINED BELOW:

  1. The submitted video should take place at or very close to the start line and begin with the entire athlete in frame stating their name, the challenge name, their division.
  2. The athlete needs to show the camera all the equipment and supportive equipment they are wearing or will wear for the challenge to confirm it all matches the rules outlined.
  3. Scale verification. The athlete must place a kettlebell or dumbbell onto a scale and show the scale reading is correct.
    * The weight of the kettlebell or dumbbell must be shown/visible to the camera
    * The correct scale reading while the object is on the scale must be shown/visible to the camera
  4. The athlete needs to weigh the object to be carried on the digital scale, clearly showing the scale reading to the camera.  
  5. The athlete should show the GPS device being set to the start.
    * Distance and time at 0 visible
  6. When ready to begin, show time.is to the camera and then the athlete may end this portion of the video.
    * The athlete should immediately pick up their weighted object, start their GPS device and begin their 1 mile course
    * If the athlete has an assistant filming the video for them, it is best to keep the camera filming as the athlete starts running their 1 mile capturing the first few hundred feet. Then, the video may conclude for this portion.
  7. When you are done with your 1 mile course, "end" your run on your GPS device (if needed) and immediately turn the camera back on.
    * Show time.is to the camera again
    * Show your GPS device displaying the distance traveled, time taken, average pace, and course map (if available)
    * If the athlete has an assistant filming the video for them, it is best to turn the camera on to capture the last few hundred feet of the run and the athlete crossing the 1 mile mark
  8. Once all of these items are completed and are clearly visible, your video may end.
    * All of the steps above should be done with the camera continuously running for the video to be accepted.
    * Failure to show these steps/items could make the video submission subject to rejection at the judges' discretion.
    * Refer to The Standard demo video on the Rogue website for a visual of how the workout and video should flow.


Failure to show these items makes submission subject ineligible.
